Hiking in Nepal
Nepal, located within the range of Himalayas and its foothills contains more then 1300 peaks between 5500m and 8848m high. Its spectacular mountainous scenery, the friendliness of its people, the history, the variety of cultures and facilities available make Nepal a very popular hiking destination and a paradise for climbers, mountaineers and hikers.
Nepal offers also a variety of day hiking with its hilly, jungle covered countryside and interesting ethnic villages and historical cities scattered around the country. Hiking in Nepal offers spectacular, almost unbelievable cinemascope views of the mountains, waterfalls, green lushy forest, and the deep valleys as well as an in-look into Nepali people's lifestyle, their art, architecture and cultural traditions . Hiking through these areas provides opportunity to meet and explore various Nepalese ethnic cultures from friendly, confident, outgoing, helpful and warm Sherpas to timid and shy ethnic communities. The ultimate joy of standing at the highest points on the earth is unforgettable.
Hiking in Nepal is a rewarding and delightful experience. The combination of awe aspiring mountains with its almost magic and paranormal landscapes, interactions with spiritual and genuine people, untouched cultures and traditions, unassuming presence of Buddhist culture and living heritage is a life changing experience for many western tourists.
Art and architecture is omnipresent in Nepal, it is like walking through an open gallery, where the art is done for the art sake not just as a product for sale.
